reVISION's Featured Project

More Room Please - Interior Renovation and Rear Addition

For our family of four it was important to implement a design that would modernize the home's curb appeal within the bones of the existing Vancouver traditional structure. By applying decorative structural features and manipulating the rooflines to what already existed, we were able to create a modernized look to the 21st century.
